Year Purchased: 2007
About: We’re from Florida, so unlike so many of our fellow homeowners on St. John we didn’t come here to get away from the cold and cruel miseries of a long winter. We came to St John on a vacation and we quickly realized that this is a unique and fascinating island like no other place we’ve ever been. From there it was just a matter of time before we decided that St. John would be a wonderful place to own a vacation home. We did a bit of shopping around looking at other homes, and then we looked at Gull and it was love at first sight, and our search was over. For additional questions on our beautiful home please call our representatives at Caribbean Villas of St John. Their sales office is located in the states and if you would like to speak with a "live" person (M-F, 9-5 EST), give them a call! They are ready to answer your questions and make your reservation. 800 338-0987 and 207 510-6300. Once you arrive on St John, their local office staff will meet you and will be your on island hosts, ready to assist you in any way they can!
Why Estate Chocolate Hole and Great Cruz Bay, Saint John, USVI:
Before we bought Gull we sat on the deck and just absorbed the sights and sounds of the harbor and were fascinated by this harbor side location. We love being at the water’s edge, and whether you swim, snorkel, kayak or paddleboard, this house offers a great location for all water sports enthusiasts. But if you never go in the water, there’s still something very special and relaxing about looking at boats floating peacefully on the water a few feet in front of you. The soft, romantic and island elegant atmosphere of this home also captured us. It really has a warmth and appeal that reminds us of homes in the French countryside, yet the harbor side location and the beach out front gives it a distinctly island flavor.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Having a small beach in your front yard gives Gull a unique quality that only a few homes on St. John possess. The small tiled sitting area on the beach wall is definitely a unique feature, and for morning coffee or evening sunsets it is our favorite place to sit and relax. Access to the deep water anchorages of Great Cruz Bay allows you to add boating activities to your vacation. We’ve read guest comments about being picked up from the wall and being whisked away for a day of fun on the water. Gull is one of very few homes with a spacious and comfortable home office. If you need to bring some work while you’re on vacation, you’ll love Gull’s big, private and comfortable office, equipped with high-speed satellite access. The sounds, sights and sweet aroma of the sea just outside your windows also creates an ultra romantic ambiance that is ideal for honeymooners and lovers, but this house is also perfect for families with kids.
